A Quiet Day

Today has been almost summer-like. Very warm, very breezy, and very sleepy.  A paper wasp worked under the eaves, a damselfly hunted in the irises, and something mantis-like prowled through the hydrangea. I did small, invisible chores in the house and in my office. Now I’m ready to find a quiet corner, curl up with the cats, and open the new book on my nightstand. Page one…

In case you’re wondering, the book is Rocks of Ages by Stephen Jay Gould.

    I’ve read quite a bit of Gould. His essays in Natural History in book form used to be in my bookcase until I had to make space. I plan to get them again. I still have “Wonderful Life” and “Full House”.

      I haven’t read “Full House”, but I’ve read “Wonderful Life” more than once. I enjoy his style of writing.

    ‘Now I’m ready to find a quiet corner, curl up with the cats, and open the new book on my nightstand.’

    Sounds like a perfect plan to me! Photos, as always, are wonderful!

      Thank you! I’m looking forward to my next cats-and-books evening, which I’ve scheduled for later this week!
